Social media poses a serious challenge to law enforcement agencies: Rajnath Singh
NEW DELHI: Social media has posed a serious challenge to law enforcement agencies and the area of concerns include terrorism, financial frauds and victimisation of women and children, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today.
Inaugurating a two-day Asia-Pacific regional conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) here, Singh said that serious crime develops because the police and citizens do not work together to prevent decay of social norms and social disorder.
“The social media has also posed serious challenge to policing. The three main issues are (i) law and order, (ii) cyber crimes like fake and imitating accounts, financial frauds (Nigerian 419 frauds), malware delivery, drug and other illegal article sales, victimisation of women and children and (iii) terrorism,” he said.
